I’m Helen Roberts and I am a professionally trained Civil Celebrant, NOCN accredited and a member of the Fellowship of Independent Celebrants. I am fully insured and DBS checked.
Born in the northwest, I was an English teacher for twenty years. When I moved to the Forest of Dean, I worked with older people as a Village Agent for eleven years. I am married with a grown-up son, a lovely daughter-in-law and a granddaughter who keeps us all on our toes. In my spare time I read, write stories and keep fit by walking the dog, attending dance classes, Fitsteps and Pilates classes.
I believe that ceremonies which celebrate the milestones in our lives are important for individuals and families. Whatever the occasion, I will listen closely to you so that together we can create a ceremony which reflects your thoughts, beliefs, values, wishes and dreams.
It will then be my privilege to deliver a personalised, meaningful and memorable ceremony for you.
If you would like me to be your celebrant you can call me on 0776 534 2708 or send me a message via my contact page for a free, no obligation consultation.
Supporting Local Businesses
I believe we should support local businesses because, indirectly, we are helping other people in the area. When you are planning your wedding, be it big or small, you may find the following people helpful:
Party Tents Rock
An outdoor ceremony is lovely – but the British weather isn’t! A pop-up party tent is an excellent backup. It can shelter you from torrential rain or blistering sunshine, allowing you to enjoy your special day.
